Brecon is one of the most historic locations in Wales nestling in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and situated at the confluence of the rivers Usk and Honddu. During the Napoleonic wars, French prisoners were incarcerated in the town and some of the town's medieval walls still survive, the area called Captain's Walk marks the place where the prisoners exercised.

The Brecon Beacons National Park was designated in 1957 and is surrounded by traditional Welsh towns and stunning landscape. The scenery is very diverse from the rolling countryside and valleys to splendid waterfalls and caves. If you want to have a go at an outdoor activity there are plenty of centres which hire equipment and teach new skills.

Take a trip on the Brecon Mountain Railway Travel and through beautiful scenery into the Brecon Beacons National Park. Follow the route along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservoir to Dol-y-Gaer. Visit the tea shop, take a ramble alongside the reservoir or browse the shop and take home a souvenir.

Brecon Cathedral – A Norman Benedictine Priory was founded on the site where the cathedral stands since 1093. The Cathedral is a very popular venue for locals and visitors and as well as regular services it also plays host to a number of concerts and events throughout the year.

Brecon Theatre is located close to the canal basin.

The town has two museums the Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecknock Museum

Shopping in the town is a real treat explore the narrow streets and passageways lined with Georgian and Jacobean shopfronts. Brecon also has a range of art galleries and independant retailers who market themselves as the Artbeat Trail.
